Where did the time go, how did it fly by so fast.
It dose not seem so long ago when I reflect back on my past.

Some say the glass is half empty, for some it is half full.
I just whish I could slow down the coarse of natures pull.

Like many as a youth I could not wait to grow up.
I would get my own place, a car; do what I want, when I wanted.
Filled to the brim would be life’s cup.

Unfortunately, for me, to life’s pains I held so tight.
Time seems to have flown by, not really enjoying life.
Oh, how resentments and anger do leave such a bite.

I can no longer have my body function as it once did.
I am older, slower and have aches and pains.
I wonder why I couldn’t have just enjoyed being a kid.

In the morning when I wake my parts no longer salute the sun.
As gravity does work and now the parts hang there in shame.

Life goes on weather you want it to or not.
I don’t want to waste the time I have left as I did in the past.

I try to look on the lighter side of things and enjoy all that can be seen.Now when I lie down at night I am no longer a depressed mess.

Ponder Point:

I use to love this time of year. I loved the weather the, feeling of warmth when around family and friends.
To give thanks for all that you had, not grumble about what you don’t have.

I think about the Ron Howard movie “The Grinch” I think about the scenes of all the whos down in whoville and their focus on all the commercialism.

You can’t even make it to Thanksgiving with out hearing or seeing the bombardment of holiday advertisements.
In fact, you just barely get done with Halloween when it all starts.

You’re told that to be happy and successful you need to have bigger, better and newer.
I recall not to long ago and jewelry commercial where this wife and husband we at some party and she notices every woman’s jewelry.
She focuses on how much bigger and better their things are and it is all because they went to a certain jewelry store.

She is all in a huff and crams her munchies down in his drink when he says hello dear.
That just irritates me to no end, about how ungrateful she was for what she did have.

We live in a society where we don’t give thanks for our food, clothing and shelter that we do have.
Out there in the world there are so many whom have much less, but we don’t care we just got to have the biggest, newest and best of whatever is out there.

What a pity.

Who Can Make a Rainbow

I had the privilege of being given a rainbow bracelet and this was inspired by that.

The bracelet was to remind me of how I was on a new journey and to remind me of the good in life.

Sure, I have had some crummy things happen to me and my family. However, how I wish to take the experience changed my mood greatly.

Instead, of focusing on why things happened and who had it in for me, I tried to think of the good that can come out of a bad situation.

Don’t get me wrong there are some experiences out there that seem almost impossible to conclude what is good out of them. It may not occur to you at first but, eventually.

I have learned out of the Beth Moore study of the book of Daniel that there 3 reason God puts you certain things.

It is to deliver you from it, so I can glorify him.

It may be to refine you through fire like a precious metal.

In certain situations it is to bring you through it and on home to his loving arms.

I had a real problem with God for why he lets bad things happen. Mainly, why he let my
Grandfather (whom raised me) be eat up with cancer.

It had eaten through part of his rib cage before it was noticed, because it went through him very rapidly.

So, the answer is; you can make a rainbow.
This for most of life is quite a task.
